Synopsis


Conspiracy
In January of 1942, 15 of Adolf Hitler's right-hand men gathered together for a special meeting in Wannsee, in which over the course of two hours they debated the pros and cons of Hitler's latest directive and the best way to implement it. By the time they left, they had laid the practical groundwork for the "Final Solution," with the execution of every Jewish person in Europe as their goal. A transcript of the meeting has survived, and that document provided the basis for the screenplay for Conspiracy, which dramatizes (in real time) the meeting that led to the greatest crime of the 20th century. Conspiracy stars Kenneth Branagh, Colin Firth, Stanley Tucci, and David Threlfall; the film was produced for the premium cable network HBO, where it first aired on May 19, 2001. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Stellar cast, well written with sharp execution. It is the story of the Wannsee Conference, where plans for the 'Final Solution' were discussed. Kenneth Branaugh is at once charming, manipulative and evil as Heydrich. Stanley Tucci chilling as Eichmann. A must see for history buffs.

    Actual historical events of WWII are the fabric of this movie, that reveal truths that many have forgotten or are unaware of. This is a dramatic film that is emotional for anyone to watch.
